I'll be on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2017!

So, I'll be on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2017 which begins tonight at 8 p.m.

There were 6 heats in the preliminary rounds and my episode airs on 14th February. To be judged to enter the competition, a self portrait was required, and here's mine.

I can't reveal any more, so you'll just have to watch to see what happens!

Fancy entering the next one? The deadline for the portrait competition is 3rd March 2017.
